Just An Angry Rant About The Whole Shia LeBeouf Art Theft Thing

Just An Angry Rant About The Whole Shia LeBeouf Art Theft Thing

I’m tempted to just repost CHUD.com’s breakdown of the whole Shia LaBeouf art-theft deal, without any credit, as a hilarious meta-commentary. But even as a joke, that makes me queasy. Also, I typed the hyphenate “meta-commentary” and I feel like I should be set on fire for it. So let’s leave that and go back to 6 o’clock Tuesday morning. I had just gotten up and... »

How To Go To A Museum During A Government Shutdown

How To Go To A Museum During A Government Shutdown

Last week I was in Washington, D.C. for work. During my time there, I got to walk around the National Mall (now closed), The Smithsonian Air and Space Museum (also closed), and The National Gallery of Art (you may notice a pattern developing here because this place is closed too). When I got back home I was thinking about how, if the government shutdown were to occur, people wouldn’t be able... »

In addition to almost being beard-napped by angry space gnomes (long story), he was a contestant and FINALIST on Penny Arcade’s reality web-series Stripsearch!, where he battled 11 other contestants (to the death? Wait that can’t be right) to win a bunch of money and move to Seattle, like a jerk. If ... »

For me, I point to th... »
